How to Organize Your Closet

Home > 31-W Insulation Blog > How to Organize Your Closet

Ever had a morning when you’re late for work but can’t find something in your closet, say, a jacket you thought you hung among your old sweaters but now seems to have walked off? It’s a stressful and time-wasting experience. But there is a way to organize your closets that will streamline your daily routine and make it much easier to locate the items you need. It’s based on simple principles that apply to all types of closets, from small linen closets to bedroom walk-ins.

How to Organize Your Closet

Group Similar Things Together

Don’t fill empty closet spaces with random items. Store shirts with shirts and dresses with dresses. That way, there will be no doubt where those items are when you need them.

Let Your Shelves Work for You

Instead of adapting to your closet shelves, customize them according to your needs. For example, if you have at least 12 inches of vertical space between shelves, you might want to add another one for extra storage. Or, if you have tall boots or tall containers, move shelves up so that they can fit.

Store Items by Frequency of Use

If you have blankets and pillows you rarely use, stash them in the back of your linen closet, not the front. This prevents you from having to maneuver around them to get the sheets, pillowcases, and the like that you use more frequently.

Maintain Some Uniformity

Uniformity eliminates visual clutter, making your closet space feel neater. To transform your closet visually and help you stay motivated to maintain the space, professional organizers recommend matching hangers, shoe boxes, and containers.
